  • "From the first step in the door, we immediately felt the warmth and charm of your home. It would be easy to have stayed but we did venture into town. The Carriage House felt like our home away from home as our family celebrated this Christmas season. Thanks again for making this an unforgettable anniversary gift to our parents."

  • "The Radford family celebrated the 80th birthday reunion of June Radford (Mom). This was our first reunion of the whole family since 2000. The Strachan House made the perfect site for our get-together. The patio by the pool was a wonderful place for everyone to sit and talk in the evening. St. Simons Island is also a great place to visit. Kayaking, bike riding, walks, and the trolley tour were big hits. Also visited the light-house, the cemetery at the Episcopal Church near Ft. Frederica. And we can’t forget that Mom proved her prowess at miniature golf at the age of 80."
